A Certain Degree of Failure
One year ago I suffered from a case of severe burnout. Like many, I never expected it would happen to me, nor did I detect its onset. I was struck with a perception of personal failure as compared to my direct surroundings. For the past year I have been documenting my life, trying to find both the cause of my burnout and the road back to my familiar self. Along the way I’ve realized that perhaps these feelings of failure were instrumental in revealing the essentially illusory nature of my old “self”.
